Carved Skull with Beret
“Carved Skull with Beret” done on ancient walrus jawbone hundreds of years old by talented unknown carver. This playful carving has just the right touch. Not everyone can pull off wearing such a fancy beret with such aplomb. Great addition to any collection.
This is ancient walrus tusk jawbone found in the Northern Bering Sea area. The material is 500-1500 years old and is occasionally found in ancient Eskimo camp and hunting sites. The marvelous colors are the result of minerals that have been absorbed into the jawbone over hundreds and hundreds of years. Obviously this material cannot be replenished, making it quite collectible and valuable.
